The Harrisburg Internship Semester (THIS)

Opening doors for college students in partnership with state government
Since 1989, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education has sponsored a semester-long internship program for outstanding students, in all academic majors, from its 14 universities. The Harrisburg Internship Semester (THIS) places these selected students in working relationships with policymakers in the executive and legislative branches of Pennsylvania government, as well as with independent boards, agencies, and commissions.
